Norinda Rosario Yancey
Director of Community Impact, United Way of North Central Florida
Came to Greater Gainesville in 2013
What about Greater Gainesville stood out when comparing it to your other options?
The low cost of living, pet-friendly housing, and Santa Fe College’s dual enrollment program. The trees, winding roads and friendly community were the hook.
What is your favorite local food?
Fish tacos at Boca Fiesta, Daily Green’s brunch time waffles, the Saturday lunch buffet at Wah Ha Ha or Andaz Indian cuisine.
Describe your ideal day in Greater Gainesville.
Start by walking our pup Kuma in Kanapaha Park and then grabbing a late morning breakfast at 43rd Street Deli or Metro Diner. Then off to Regal Cinemas where I can have a beer with my movie. Relish veggie burgers are right there and too hard to ignore, so we’d grab takeout and hustle home. Gotta catch a nap so we’re ready to party with DJ Genius at The Bank!
